Smiling politely to the receptionist in thanks, Zed peeked into the breakroom before entering.

He made it a point of noting every metalborn in the building, either from public record or just word of mouth, and it didn't take him long to realize that both people in the room were twinborn, and he would make three.

Bronze was a familiar burn in his stomach, a sense he nearly took for granted. He could feel some tin being burned nearby, which confirmed for him that the smoker wasn't being used, so he was sure he was the only person burning in this room.

Quite the crew already assembled. Must be a pretty big case to require so many talents.

He didn't know much about these specific two beyond general knowledge, but it was a solid bet that the one eating was currently storing speed, confirming the scuttlebutt. From a quick glance at their body language and proximity, he was pretty sure their silence was companionable.

Ignoring the mugs on the table he opened a cabinet and pulled out his own, larger mug from the dark recesses, and filled it to the brim with coffee. Without a word, he took it to a table in the corner and sat calmly watching the room while silently sipping, taking in details. He enjoyed the rich, warm taste of the coffee, tapping a bit of taste to enhance the flavor. Ms Black sure didn't skimp on the good stuff. While he was at it, he improved his sight and hearing slightly, eavesdropping on his companions.

A bald, blond-bearded man strides into the break room and drapes a Roughs style duster over the back of an unoccupied chair. "Sig, Sate, Zed," he says, nodding to each in turn and straightening his sleeve. "You all look to be in good form this morning."

Hedge peels off the false beard and tucks it away before collecting a cup of coffee. "I take it we are all awaiting Mrs. Black's convenience?" He returns to his chair, but sets aside the cup without sitting, instead collecting the duster, shaking it out and deftly folding. A moment later he is pulling on a thick coat that looks remarkably similar to those used by the canal crews. With no false hair applied his Terris heritage is quite obvious, to a degree that you are surprised you didn't immediately apply the label on first seeing the man.

"Hedge. Good morning! Still playing dress ups? I don't know how you find the time!"

I'm also awaiting the question of whether we can expect Copper to be running in headquarters. If it is running, then Sate will be burning Iron. She finds it comforting, it makes her feel like she has some control over her situation.

Vath strolls into the room and raises an eyebrow as he sees the collected dectives. Seeing Sate, Sigurd and Hedge conversing he joins them.

"Well then, I expect this will be an interesting job. Must be something out of the ordinary to put together a group like this."

My thumbs have gotten a bit worse again so I can't type much right now. :/ But at least Vath is isn't holding up the scene now.

Zed gets up and pours himself a second mug of coffee.

Sate twiddles her thumbs, fiddles with her hair, and then begins gently pulling on things made of metal in the vicinity, one by one, only strongly enough to nudge them a little.

Zed notes that she's begun to burn iron and taps hearing, trying to use his bronze to sense when she's pulling versus just burning, and listening for the rattle of metal to confirm.

Hedge gives Sate a sidelong look when his spoon twitches in her direction as he stirs extra cream into the dregs of his coffee.

Sate blushes sheepishly, but doesn't stop tugging on various objects.
